administration even though it was approved by the state department, hillary clinton, and here's the one that -- here's the one that kills me the most. you know the way china is burning our coal? sending it up to the environment? china has agreed with cuba that it's going to drill for oil 20 miles off the coast of cuba which, i think, is 70 miles off the coast of florida? we're not drilling for it? it's our oil. explain that to me. china is going to do it safer than we would do it? we're not drilling because we're afraid of an oil spill, but china is going to extract the oil from the ground in a safer way than we do? this election is going to be two very, very different directions. obama gets re-elected, i say he reaffirms and in stronger terms his just say no approach to energy. i think nuclear power is finished. coal is finished. fracking gets slowed down because if you get intimidated by the environmentalists over the keystone pipeline, wait until you see what they do to him over fracking. we'll work on wind and solar, and china's working on everything else, and once again, we're goin
to the kind of tax rates we had under the clinton administration when those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices and a balanced approach is the only approach i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal? >> it's amazing to me congressman heinrich that you can stand here having voted for a trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years and with respect to cut gap and balance it's amazing to me also this idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare and education and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. e. republican congre
-president biden was there today's topic for reelection. expected to be joined by former president bill clinton, and you can watch that live at 3:30 p.m. eastern on our companion network c-span. >> as you consider that, you know, while ago no one would ever agree to carry around a tracking device. now we all carry around cell phones, which you can inherit the track. no one would ever have posted, you know, let anyone read their you know, right now all of us use the e-mail and it's all store on the server by go will. and so this is interesting that we, as a society, have given our information out. >> we were looking into cyber and cyber security, cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people and machines and networks as a new domain of war, and yet we realize that maybe one in 1,000 people really understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities. and so what we are trying to do is to take pieces of it and explain the fundamentals of the platonic idea that everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understan
the clinton administration and those upper income earners were doing well in the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices and a balanced approach is the only approach that i believe will get us there. >> you're rebuttal? >> it's amazing that you can stand here having voted for a trillion dollar deficit for the last four years. the largest, fastest that increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut cabin balance it's amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force the congress to set priorities and stop funding things like cylinder solyndra and prioritize like social security, medicare and education and that's why i support the balanced budget to the constitution. >> i especially like watching the gavel-to-gavel coverage. it is really only the place to get the real deal and i also enjoy newsmakers and the book p
, but when i worked there during the clinton administration it was absolutely not apolitical. people make decisions about what it will find, what you will do. i was told that during the bush administration the oig would write reports. that are be completely redlined and turned into a one page memo if it did not fall on certain lines. so i do not think that as possible. >> let me disagree a little bit. maybe not vigilance, but with resources in our world, all these complaints about not covering the good news, different types of news that come from different types of entities can be reapportioned to other needs. the mayor's office, they had at 1.3 of some of the best former writers in town, former journalists. they could have produced a voice of the mayor's office that was interesting to read, that i would have read. that -- is that government propaganda? of course it is. but on the other hand, n look, nfl.com is doing. they ron collins and analysis, interesting conflict-type stories -- run columns and interesting conflict-type stories. resources are going direct. in a world of dwindling re
the first, the first republican control of both houses during the clinton administration, we were able to balance the budget for the first time in over 40 years. the poverty level was not as high. kids were taken care of. you're looking at a person who has passed children's legislation to help them. and nobody in utah should suffer and go without. but mitt romney covered last night how important it is that we have a good economy and that we get people back to work. and that we get jobs. that's why he's going to win this presidency. regardless of what happened last night or what the pundits say, mitt was right. and, frankly, that's the only way we're going to pull ourselves out of here. think about it. when this president took over, 32 million people were on food stamps. today 47 million just a year or two later. now, all i can say is that we've got to change it, and i agree with scott, we all need to change it for the benefit of children. >> moderator: a rebuttal, mr. howell? howell: well, i don't think there's a rebuttal because orrin and i know we shouldn't have starving children. my
clinton's national security operation form. last month in new york, it provides a venue for collaborative securities discussions with all of the gcc nations. but something has changed. it was reflected in the recent summit last august. i spoke with many of and some of them spoke with a different idea in the atmosphere of the meetings. one individual in particular described it this way. he said the attendees had constituent concerns. these concerns were expressed. they were not just representing their government. there was a keen sense that they were representing their people. plus, they had to go back home. they had to explain their roles to their people. the arab spring has produced a very real sense of accountability on the part of the leadership in the region. .. the operative word for government was controlled. you can show the media and the message. you control the population is at the borders. you control local and regional events. it was true for the governments of the region. it is true for u.s. policy as reflected in the outsize focus on military capability. but today, informatio
exploring for oil offshore in the gulf and that is absolute treason against posterity. >> host: bill clinton and former president was in minnesota yesterday campaigning for the president. here's what he had to say on the store and climate change. >> was in closely to the candidate said in the debates. in the first debate, the triumph of the moderate mitt romney. you know what he did? he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming in an economically beneficial way. he said you are going to turn back the sea. if we could have done that mr. de. all up and down the east coast there are mayors many of them republican who are being told you've got to move these houses back away from the ocean. you better call lifted them up. climate changes clinton lifted the levels on a permanent basis. if you want your home injured, you have to do this. in the real world, barack obama's policies worked better. >> host: former president bill clinton in minnesota yesterday talking about climate -- global climate change and mitt romney's policies on that. we will hear fro
for the inspector general. we don't have to submit our resignation to i remain in the administration for the clinton years, through the bush years after the obama years. for for 11 years i was there. our role is to detect and deter waste, fraud, and abuse, and improve the economy and efficiency of the agency. but our role was also to promote transparency and what the agency did, because i believe very strong and we believe are strongly that it was important for the citizens in the at the government was doing. that's the point in the law enforcement context, but in the intelligence area as well. we did reduce intelligence matters ranging from review of the robert hanssen case at the fbi, why wasn't the robert hanssen could be a spy and fbi missed for several decades, when it initially came out, the fbi said it was because of his wily tradecraft picking out to exploit the system and we are asked to look at it determined that that was not true. that they had lax internal security methods and that he it needed improvement. not only did we do that report but we also made public the findings of the report
that there could be a deal that would lead as mrs. clinton has said to a quick easing of sanctions, and i think the solution is for iran to find a way to accept the deal that is honorable. thank you. [applause] >> some good questions here, but let me ask if anyone wants to comment on this. because the title is american and arab policies and shortcomings. people emphasized the u.s. policy but does anyone want to comment on what the gcc countries think about american policy in the region in terms of its containment or of iran? for example, it seems to me that they are generally satisfied with defense cooperation and have accepted and cooperated on sanctions, but they have considerable concerns about war and considerable concerns about the consequences of iraq and what our policy is in syria, and certainly palestine. so would anyone like to comment about that? >> can everybody hear me? so, i think part of iran's favor is isolating itself from the neighborhood in terms that particularly the gcc states. under ahmadinejad since 2005, the islamic republic has done a lot to scare everybody in the regio
as u.s. district judge for the district of columbia appointed by president clinton 94 and served on the intelligence surveillance court. thank you all three of you for coming. we will start with panelists making remarks and then move on to the question and answer. >> thank you. karen come thank you for putting the panel together in for inviting me. i've been involved with karen and this organization and its predecessors since 2005, and it's one of the most fun things i do. beyond my day job is to get to be in discussion with many of your rent the room from old friends, and great to meet some new friends as well. let me just throw out a couple of first principles regarding secrecy, classified information and then make a couple observations about the cases of which my district currently has several under way. first a point of agreement i think for everyone on this panel. i assume everybody in this room, the importance of a free press, and the need to avoid interference with its appropriate functioning. the stipulated believe that the vigilance media is the core pillar in our democr
that was passed in the clinton years. these folks are i'm sure, sheldon, et al. and others have been found of work on this issue. if you look at the employment rates of single mothers and you compare them to the unemployment rate of say, married moms can begin, controlling for education so you're not getting that in the next. you will find, donna and other folks at the center on budget have done this work, you will find that the unemployment rate of single moms grow precipitously, growth steeply in the 1990s. now, part of that is a murray a fact, and it has to do with requirements within welfare program. researchers try to tease out what shares, with a full public job market for the first time in decades. i don't think we've had one before or since. we had a full employment -- we're large increase in the earned income tax credit which incentivizes were. we had an increase in the minimum wage. a lot of moving parts. alston is employment rates of. the analysis suggests that maybe 15 or 20% of it was well for reform. the rest of economy and measures like the earned income credit and solar. so you hav
